Lisa R Reflects on That Bittersweet Episode

Wishing Brandi the Best

Taylor discusses the anger she was holding onto in Ojai and why Brandi's book deal bothered her.

Kim planned such a lovely getaway for the girls and it made me sad to see her upset during the first dinner outing for the group. Last year when Brandi incorrectly accused her of doing crystal meth, it really hurt Kim and her family deeply. It was a big step for Kim to leave her comfort zone and go away with us and I didn't want her to shed a single tear. Perhaps this will be a turning point for their relationship having had the chance to discuss the past. I am not sure if Adrienne announcing to the group that Kim was crying was her way of alerting everyone that Kim may need protecting again or if it was more about her issues with Brandi. Either way, it set off as Lisa called it "shut the f--- up gate." There is some serious underlying tension between Adrienne and Brandi and we haven't seen the last of that.

As for tension, I am still holding a great deal of resentment for Brandi's comments in the reunion last year regarding my writing a book. She did not know my family nor was she around through the previous years as the other ladies were. Therefore, I didn't think it was her place to pass judgment. Her announcing her book deal only brought up the memory of her comments to me and opened a wound I was hoping we could close this year. I want success for all the people in my life and I wish her the same with her book.

Going through the last year, I have had a myriad of emotions. I have experienced feelings I would have never expected possible. Anger was one of those emotions. I found myself angry and easily agitated. I wasn't angry with anyone or anything in particular. This emotion was the most difficult to deal with of all I experienced because it made me feel like a completely different person and I was terribly unhappy. Watching moments where I see that in myself makes me sad and regretful.

On a lighter note. . .my favorite moments with the ladies are always when we are having fun, laughing, and enjoying one another. Watching us racing across the golf course in golf carts brought a smile to my face. This was the first day I saw a glimpse of a fun side to Yolanda and that was a pleasant surprise. Watching the girls play badminton was so fun. This is not a sport we play in Beverly Hills. . .clearly. Mud slinging at the spa and then. . .Drunk-nastics! Anything more I need to say???

Lets just leave it at that. We all needed that kind of fun. Love my gal pals.

Lets keep enjoying this life because trust me. . .it's too short.

Kisses for now from the BH.

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
